The Forum of Refugee and Asylum Seeker Organizations in Israel, in which ACRI is a member, published a report reflecting the dire situation of the asylum seeker population during the COVID-19 crisis. The report details the heightened labor, economic, and social crisis of this particular population, emphasizing the problem of access to health and educational services, and the status of women and children. The Forum makes several suggestions to improve the situation of the asylum seeking community during this time.
